As a teacher and advisor I resist becoming a photocopy machine. While the foundations of my courses are rigor and content, I make every effort to build rich environments in which students are encouraged to become their own agents and discover their own definitions of, and pathways to, success. I try to show possibilities and then providing the knowledge, tools and encouragement to achieve. My classes tend to be socially and emotionally open and hierarchically flat. Real-world applications are often brought in through semester-long projects, and I regularly bring in material and guest speakers from other disciplines. While I keep up with the latest research on pedagogical practices, I often invent new classroom exercises. Teaching in this way is its own reward.
I have had the good fortune to have taught a wide range of courses to a diverse group of students in several ormats. Below are select courses I have taught.
